Text does not come down to meet footer.




I have a strange one here, I think. As you'll see in Image 1 below, th
text does not always come down to meet the top of the footer area o
some pages (on the top right page). The top left page is okay at thi
point. This seems to occur at random throughout the document.

In Image 2 below, you will see what happens if I enter a paragraph par
way through the text. Now the top left page goes farther away from th
footer, and the top right page descends closer to the footer.

Any ideas how I can stop this so the text always reaches just above th
footer on every page?

Four different settings can interact to yield uneven page lengths (and that's not even considering footnotes).

- Widow and Orphan Control (won't let a single line stand at the top or
bottom of a page; that's what's affecting the only page break visible in
your screen shot)

- Keep Lines Together (paragraph will never break across a page)

- Keep With Next (needed for headings and subheadings)

- Space Before / Space After (if you're going to use it, you need to set
it to a multiple or small fraction, e.g. 1/2, of the line spacing value)

(In your second screen shot, the upper left arrow is pointing to an empty
paragraph. Simply delete the paragraph.)
